Waterman 52V Olive Ripple – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52V Olive Ripple – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is the much rarer Waterman Olive Ripple hard rubber on a model 52V (which happens to be my favorite Waterman model). The color of the ripple is quite good with only minimal color alteration. It does not look at all faded. The imprints are worn a bit but mostly readable. There is a very small (2.5mm) scratch right next to the side barrel imprint. There is a little brassing on the top edge of cap band, and a little more on the ball of the clip, but the brassing is not very obvious and the trim still has that silky gold look. The globe on the lever is worn and only partially readable, and there is some brassing on the globe edges. The 14kt. Waterman #2 on this pen is a beauty. If you like soft writing nibs, this is for you. Normal writing is soft, rather wet, and buttery smooth F (0.4mm). The flex on this nib is also soft ranging from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.9mm). Responsiveness is good as well. This is a fantastic, rare pen.
